We found this place on the recommendation of a friend. After a swim at the Jumeirah Beach, this was the ideal place for lunch. They have a AED 10 meal with a nice medium size fish, served with hot rice and fish curry. You can...More

This place is very humble, but incredibly delicious. The fish was fresh and flavorful. I also highly recommend the shrimp. You can order it with rice, coconut curry and paratha. The curry is great, but the paratha was mediocre. Regardless, the shrimp and fish were...More

This place is simple, authentic and serves delicious fish and shrimp. Not for those who are after a fancy place. The sauce is spicy yet delicious.

Visited twice while on holiday it was that good! Fresh and tasty fish. No fuss, just order and select the fish/prawns you’d like and within 30 mins your order will be ready. Love the fish curry too! A must try!

Probably some of the freshest fish and shrimp I have had. Grilled to perfection - served with flaky porotta(Indian bread) and spicy fish curry. Perfect combination. Have the Indian tea with milk also - we ordered 12 for a group of 4. Worth every penny!

I thought the place itself was unique don’t expect anything fancy it’s very basic. The food is nice but didn’t really think it was anything special.

This place is famous in Dubai but our experience was lesser than expected. The location of the place is nice - very close to the beautiful Sunset Beach in Umm Suqeim (although you can't see the beach or sea from the restaurant). The ambience is...More
